So after a friend of mine kindly supplied me with some of the basic unit profiles, I've begun working up a tentative 1000 point 1st Legion list.

Now I'm sure this will be far from ideal, but I'm trying to only work with what I've currently got. I don't want to drop too much cash on any big ticket items yet, if I can help it. Not until I suss out whether Heresy is something I want to pursue properly.
But as I mentioned in my other thread, I'm not overly competitive, I'll run what I think is fun or interesting mostly. That being said, I don't want to hamstring myself too badly.

As to the list itself,
Spoiler:
1st Legion 1000 points

Centurion...95
Power Armour, Bolt Pistol, Chainsword, Frag & Krak Grenades.
Vigilator - Cameleoline, Bolter (Special Issue Ammo)

Contemptor Dreadnought...190
Smoke Launchers, Searchlight
Multi-melta, Kheres Assault Cannon

Legion Tactical Squad #1...303
20x Legion Tactical Marines
Power Armour, Bolters, Bolt Pistols, Frag & Krak Grenades.
19x Chainswords, Calabanite Warblade, Melta bombs.

Legion Tactical Squad #2...150
Power Armour, Bolters, Bolt Pistols, Frag & Krak Grenades.

Legion Tactical Support Squad...170
Power Armour, Bolt Pistols, Frag & Krak Grenades
4x Plasma guns, Combi-plasma gun.


As it is, that comes 908 points. I'm a bit on the fence about what to spend the last 92 points on.
My thoughts are...
-2 Apothecaries...90 points.
-1 Apothecary & 1 Techmarine...90 points.
-1 Consul-Chaplain w/combat shield...90 points.

All of these I can rustle up without any hassle, and I feel all have their merits.

Some of the other options available to me are upgrading the plasma guns for plasma repeaters/burners. Dropping the combi-plasma and taking the Chaplain with a Terranic Greatsword. Or even taking a pair of rapiers with heavy bolters and giving them Molecular acid shells. (Although I'm not sure if I'd be able to since the Rapier itself doesn't have Legiones Astartes.)

Any input or suggestion would be greatly appreciated. Any feedback at all, really!
Cheers.

1 Apothecary is probably a good shout, and look into the Scions of 'x'-wing stuff for general boosts or for flavour.
Assuming you're playing against other people that are also big block of infantry + dreadnought/ nothing tougher than a Contemptor not sure you need to add much,

You should buy extra c/c sword for all your tacticals though otherwise you miss out on the Legion trait

The 1st legion also has the dread wing Interemptors I would look into adding these into your list they are a beastly unit

I'm following this thread and glad you brought them up. Those models haven't been released yet, have they? I don't see them on the FW store.

If I've got a trade you're interested in but you don't have anything on my wanted list, just shoot me a PM and ask! I'm easily distracted!

They are released but last I checked out of stock. Quite nasty, but will definitely draw attention.

They are my bulwark against the Terror. They are the Defenders of Humanity. They are my Space Marines, and they shall know no fear.
